League sprinkles Ortegano in awards mix

Mississippi pitcher Jose Ortegano, whose next scheduled start is at Riverwalk, won the Southern League's weekly award today.

Ortegano, who joined the M-Braves on July 28, allowed one earned run in 13 innings and won twice over the last week. That includes six shutout innings against the Biscuits.

Carolina third baseman Juan Francisco, with a 16-for-31, nine-run, nine-RBI week, won the hitting award.
